Bainbridge Gardens For Plants And Inspiration

Since it’s May and time to garden we decided a visit to the fantastic Bainbridge Gardens on Bainbridge Island was the thing to do on a rainy May day (yes we live in the Northwest and May days are so often rainy). Another great thing about days like this is that they are the best for planting starts and help keep planting shock to a minimum. Continue reading Bainbridge Gardens For Plants And Inspiration

Another Visit to Port Gamble


Yet another gorgeous, sunny day in Port Gamble.  This time we visited the Hood Canal Vista Pavilion.  What a fantastic site for a wedding or reception.  Just last year it was the tent pavilion so this is quite an improvement.  I believe the new pavilion holds approximately 200 guests with an adjacent tented patio.  With windows on all sides plus french doors, the pavilion affords a breathtaking panoramic view.  So with the Hood Canal view, Hood Canal bridge, wonderful expansive lawn, rose garden, slated patio, and 20 foot tall stone fireplace, this is the place to have the reception of your dreams.


Another view showing the older tent pavilion and the new pavilion.


Just up the street is the historic Buena Vista Cemetery.  Not only is the view absolutely spectacular, but the history on the tombstones is beyond fascinating.  After spending quite some time reading them, we walked down the hill for a latte and a bite of barbecue.  Yum!


A visit to Sacks Feed & Garden in Kingston Wa


We stopped by Sacks Feed and Garden in Kingston recently and were greeted at the door by a sweet golden retriever.   She escorted us as we shopped for doggie treats (was that why she was so devoted?), slug repellent, grass seed, and some fall plants.  The store is stocked with gardening books, gifts, feed for all kinds of critters, and most enjoyable for us, flowers.  It was a fantastic sunny day and the plants were putting on their best display for us.  We decided to go next door to the Cup and Muffin to get a latte and stay a little longer.  With only a trace of fall in the air plus the warm sun, it was a pleasant way to spend an afternoon.
